After dropping new song “Bagboy” in June, the Pixies yesterday released four new songs and a new music video.
EP-1 is available on the band’s website in MP3 and lossless formats, and as a limited-edition 10-inch vinyl record.
According to the New York Times, the influential alt-rockers will continue to sporadically drop mini-releases over the next 15 months.
Bassist Kim Deal, who recently announced her departure from the band, was present last fall for the start of the recording sessions.
“It took us three days to mourn about it,” guitarist Joey Santiago told the NY Times.
To fill in for Deal, the band recruited Simon Archer for the recording sessions and will have Kim Shattuck (the Muffs) fill in for the band’s upcoming tour.
